Capricorn is so serious and practical it can be difficult to bring out their romantic side. If Capricorn is strong in the chart of your loved one, you might need some help bringing joy and love into their life. We have the answers! Read on to learn how to really capture your Capricorn lover’s attention, what turns Capricorns on, and how to build their trust so that they can really open up their hearts.
What Capricorn Needs from a Lover
Capricorns often feel the weight of the world upon them, and they are usually just as responsible and determined in their love affairs. They take everything seriously, and they need to know that you are as serious about your romance as they are. They don’t know it, but they also need a lover who will lighten their load – make them laugh, force them out the door to explore the world, and put some fun into life.
How Capricorn Shows Love
For those born under Capricorn, love is revealed through their actions and commitment. It is the rare Capricorn who is gifted with words where emotions are concerned; most are more focused on building something that lasts and taking care of responsibilities. Don’t expect flowery words and romantic surprises from your Capricorn, but if their love is true they will prove it with commitment and respect.
Astrological Types Compatible with Capricorn
Capricorns are most compatible with astrological types that honor their strong sense of duty but still encourage them to play. Cancerians along with Venus-ruled Libra and Taurus will appreciate the fidelity that Capricorn offers, as will Virgo types. Scorpio will share the serious approach to life. Capricorn will become easily frustrated with the flightiness of Gemini and Sagittarius, but it is these signs that can teach Capricorn how to really enjoy life.
How to Open the Capricorn Heart
Capricorns are supremely practical, and they have specific goals for their relationships that must be met. Unlike other signs, they are not impulsive and rarely fall head over heels unless they are going through a big planetary cycle of change. Their heart opens slowly and deliberately, and only when they can be assured that their lover is as reliable, dependable, and as focused on commitment as they are.
Turn-ons for Capricorn
Capricorns may be serious, but they are extremely physical creatures. Capricorn is an earth sign and therefore very grounded in the body. Capricorn lovers are great technicians—they want to be skillful in the bedroom. Reading the Kama Sutra together, mastering new techniques—this is what excites your Capricorn. There is some evidence that because of Capricorn’s mastery of the world he or she may have an interest in S&M, but ask first!
Capricorn’s Deepest Love Secret
The mountain goat is the symbol for Capricorn, and they want to be the best at everything they do. As a result they will rarely display any sign of weakness, and failure is their greatest fear. A true soulmate to Capricorn will be wise to ignore any cracks in the brilliant display of achievement and help quiet the relentless doubt that keeps them climbing up the mountain.
Things to Avoid with Your Capricorn Beloved
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and self-doubt and fear of failure are rarely far from their minds. It doesn’t take much to depress Capricorns, and calling their attention to their failings is the fastest way to drive them into the abyss. Their overactive sense of duty and responsibility can lead them to burn themselves out, squelching any love or joy that they feel. This is a sign that needs encouragement and positive energy to help them be the very best they can be.
How to Communicate with Capricorn
Capricorn doesn’t take very well to joking around – they are serious and want you to get right to the point. Besides, they have other things to do! There is too much work to be done (always) to waste it in small talk and chatter. To communicate effectively with Capricorns, avoid interrupting when they are focused on work and express your point clearly and directly.
How to Connect Spiritually with Capricorn
For Capricorn, spirituality is an aside—an extra that occurs when the workday is over. Without a loving partner, they can sometimes feel that life is a wasteland, so helping to bring spirituality into their life will be a great boon to them. Capricorn responds best to spiritual modalities that have a practical application and will help them in their day-to-day life.
How to Hold onto a Capricorn Forever
Capricorn wants to excel at relationships, and this means commitment. Of all of the signs, this is the one most attuned to conventional marriage and the responsibility of family life. But Capricorns demand the same from their loved ones. To hold onto a Capricorn forever, approach them with fidelity and respect. You may find a more exciting partner, but never a more steadfast one.
